When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 93,681 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.6% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, the real estate in the White Plains Rd / Mace Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 79.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.2% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the White Plains Rd / Mace Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 86.4%, which is higher than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.

neighborhoods in America.
Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the White Plains Rd / Mace Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
26.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
